Innovative Communication & Strategies


What we do

We believe that the success of any given policy hinges on its communication: how we articulate our policy intent internally and externally, the actions we choose to realise that intent and the meaning we create around those actions. For a policy to achieve its desired effect, all three must be mutually consistent, harmonious and resonant

Our mission is to use our nuanced cultural and political understanding of the environments in which we operate to develop campaigns that help our clients achieve their overarching policy objectives

We define our success by the value and impact we deliver on behalf of our clients


What we do

We are a communications and media consultancy that provides a customised end-to-end service for government and private clients: we specialise in strategic campaign planning, narrative development, message distribution and feedback generation in support of policymaking

We operate in challenging environments, communicating with hard-to-reach populations, including in Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Pakistan. We also have extensive experience in North and West Africa

We work with a range of issues including: political and military strategic communications, counter-extremism, counter-terrorism, post-conflict recovery, conflict mitigation, stabilisation, reconstruction and development

How we do it

We take a fully integrated approach to communications: we work across government departments, as well as with private enterprise and NGOs, to maximise the impact of the full range of available diplomatic, military, commercial and humanitarian levers to achieve a given policy objective

We rely on collaboration, creativity and integrity to deliver innovative solutions to complex problems in challenging environments

We see diversity and technology as key success factors: we build bespoke teams to achieve first-class results and use technological innovation to create force multipliers

We believe in an atmosphere of creative challenge: we work closely with our clients to define problem sets and build solutions that ensure the highest standards of ethics, delivery and impact

Who we are

We are a core team of experienced intercultural practitioners, with significant regional and linguistic expertise in the Middle East (specifically Syria and Iraq), North and West Africa and South Asia

Our wider team consists of international project managers with extensive government (diplomatic, military and development) and private sector experience, who lead and train specialised local teams in and/or near theatres of conflict and transition

We have proven track records of designing and delivering complex communications and media projects in conflict and post-conflict environments. We have over two and a half years of continuous experience of Syria-specific work, co-operating with the moderate armed opposition, politicians, tribal and civil society

We partner with other lead companies in the sector to build “mission tailored groups” and exploit cross-sector synergies. We also provide niche support to specialist clients

What we offer

We design our offer to match the challenge. We are impact-led and view monitoring and evaluation as an integral part of our product design

Our services include: atmospheric reporting; media monitoring and analysis; narrative mapping and modelling; target audience definition; attitudinal and behavioural analysis; distribution channel evaluation and engagement; broadcast and social media content development, production and account management; media engagement and press office management; community and key influencer outreach; news and academic publication

We seek to build capacity in our areas of operation. We offer: IT security training, training for local journalists in conflict areas, communication and videography equipment training, spokesperson and leadership training

Our values


High ethical standards - actual and perceived - are at the core of our identity and our operations: they are fundamental to gaining the trust and confidence of our clients and the partners on whom we rely

We specialise in operating in and around conflict zones. By their nature, these are chaotic and ambiguous environments. We value integrity and the highest standards of ethics and accountability to ensure not only that we remain committed to being part of the solution but that we also avoid institutionalising the problem

The strategic challenges our clients face are often complex, involving a range of international partners and nuanced geo-political considerations. We value discretion and trust in our client relationships

We value innovation, creativity and wide-ranging collaboration to solve seemingly insurmountable problems. We believe that diversity of input helps us see things differently, identify hidden opportunities and manage our risk

We value transparency and constructive challenge in our relationships with clients, partners and our networks. Mutual understanding, learning and development are key components in improving our systems and our solutions.
